Data centre switches market 'set for growth' - Network Accessories

The data centre switches market should see healthy growth over the next few years, it has been claimed.

Crehan Research believes the market will expand at a rate of ten per cent through to 2017, as demand for network equipment continues to increase.

The firm expects much of the growth to be driven by 10GBASE-T switches and 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches.

"Given the mid-2012 step-function increase in 10GBASE-T server adapter and LAN-on-Motherboard shipments and subsequent introduction of numerous attractively-priced 10GBASE-T data center switches, we expect exponential growth in 10GBASE-T switch port shipments," said Seamus Crehan , president of Crehan Research.

He said the strong ramp in 40GbE will be driven by a number of factors.

Firstly, the upgrade to 10GbE switches in the server access layer should drive 40GbE deployments in the uplink, aggregation and core sectors of data center networks," Mr Crehan added.

"Second, 40GbE, with its QSFP interface, also can be used as four individual 10GbE links which not only provides very high 10GbE switch port density but also gives uplink/downlink and oversubscription/wire-speed flexibility," he stated.
